‘Unadorned and quite exquisite’ ~ Uncut Magazine

Fay Hield is a singer who seems to have been born knowing how to carry a tune but with the rarer gift of also knowing how to go straight to the heart of a song.

Her debut solo album ‘Looking Glass‘, was released in September 2010 by prestigious folk label, Topic Records and quickly earned Fay many accolades as well as a nomination for the Horizon Award at the 2010 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. Fay’s second album, Orfeo, is due for release in 2012.

The focus of the first album was Fay’s rich and unadorned voice. While ‘Orfeo‘ finds her once again exploring lesser known traditional songs, the new recordings see Fay confidently fronting a stellar supporting cast; The Hurricane Party.

Consisting of some of the finest folk musicians working today The Hurricane Party features ; Andy Cutting (button accordions, melodeon), Rob Harbron (English Concertina, fiddle, vocals), Sam Sweeney (fiddle, viola, cello, nyckelharpa, vocals) and Roger Wilson.

Yet another amazing night of live folk music at Ropetackle that really shouldn’t be missed.
